  • Wonderful small-town romance

    Make Mine a Cowboy is the second book in the Meadow Valley series. You can read this book as a standalone with absolutely no issue. Charlotte North spent a week in Meadow Valley visiting her grandmother and subsequently had one hot week with Ben Callahan. They both knew what it was, as Ben isn't into commitment anymore than Charlotte is. She is content in her life in New York working as a doctor and he is working with his brother, Sam and friend Colt, at their family ranch. Nearly as soon as Charlotte has gone back to New York, her grandmother is in an accident that lands her in a wheelchair with broken bones and unable to run her Inn as she normally would. Charlotte takes a leave of absence to head back to California to help her grandmother out. The last thing she was thinking about was the fact that Ben, the man she had spent so much time with and enjoyed so much would be such a part of her life for the two months she'd be there. When Charlotte got wind that her grandma wants to set her up with an eligible suitor, she asks Ben to pose as her boyfriend, which isn't a hardship for him since he's developing feelings. Will this former commitment phobe be able to actually settle down and will Charlotte be able to focus on something outside of her work? I always enjoy small-town romances and this one was no exception. I enjoyed both Charlotte and Ben a lot and the secondary characters added their own flair to the story as well. I'm looking forward to additional books in this series!

  • Finding Home

    Ben and Charlotte’s story is an emotional and moving tale in Make Mine a Cowboy by A.J. Pine, book two in her Meadow Valley series. When Dr. Charlotte North’s grandmother has a bad fall, she returns to Meadow Valley to help out. Since she is only planning on being town a few months she doesn’t have time for a player, no matter how tempting Ben Callahan might be. Besides, she plans to return to New York and the career she loves. When her gram decides to meddle in her personal life Charlotte knows the perfect guy to help her out. Ben is the perfect no-string boyfriend, at least until Charlotte finds that underneath that tough, charming exterior is a sweet and bighearted cowboy. Ben has no problem pretending to be Charlotte’s boyfriend; it gives him a chance to prove that he’s changed from being an immature playboy. Despite pretending to be in a relationship Ben is finding himself falling for Charlotte. Two months will definitely not be enough. Ben has a huge task in front of him, trying to convince Charlotte how much he’s truly cares for her and she should stay in Meadow Valley. Now Charlotte has to decide if there is enough in Meadow Valley to make her stay; friends, family, a job, and love. Ms. Pine wrote a wonderful, emotional, and enjoyable story that is not to be missed. She provided a tale rich with sizzling chemistry, amusing banter, lots of laughs, and charming secondary characters giving Nick and Charlotte a push for that chance at love. I highly recommend Make Mine a Cowboy to other readers. I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.

  • Another great visit to Meadow Valley

    Meadow Valley is a nice place to visit for a few days. This fake relationship had a second chance aspect to it that I really enjoyed. I loved how Ben did a complete 180 from how he had been living before. Charlotte’s craving for stability kept her from committing to stay in Meadow Valley but she dropped everything to come help when it was needed. These two had some great banter and watching the growth was fun. I can’t wait to see which resident of Meadow Valley gets their HEA next!

  • Missed the beginning

    This was book 2 in the series and it felt like I was playing catch up as Ben and Charlotte had apparently spent a week together prior to the start of this book. I don't know how much of that was portrayed previously but it felt like I was missing chunks of their backstory and the typical things that help you get to know and connect with the characters, such as their physical characteristics. Consequently it took me a while to feel in sync with the book and connect with the characters. Charlotte has returned to Meadow Valley to care for her injured grandmother and help run her inn, however she is determined to return to her career in New York afterwards. In the meantime she reconnects with Ben and what starts out as friendship soon morphs into something more like a real relationship, however they both fight it and try to deny their true feelings. I liked that the characters struggled and fought to overcome their personal shortfalls and how they were able to help each other become better versions of themselves. I received a free copy of this book and am voluntarily leaving a review. All opinions expressed are solely my own.

  • Never Too Late to Begin Again

    3.5 stars Make Mine a Cowboy was an entertaining fake dating and second chance-ish cowboy romance. I really enjoyed how Ben and Charlotte helped each other become/want to be better versions of themselves. They were so sweet together and I loved their ribbing and banter. I do wish they would have been more open and honest with each other about their feelings, but it made sense given their fears and history. The hot and cold back and forth did make things feel a bit too drawn out, but I really loved the ending and epilogue and how they worked to get there. I always love small town romances because of the meddling townspeople and families and Meadow Valley was no different. There are lots of great characters in this one and I especially loved no nonsense Pearl. She added some wonderful comic relief, but also the kick in the pants our characters sometimes needed. If you've never read a cowboy romance before, I definitely recommend AJ Pine's books. She brings lots of fun contemporary/pop culture references into her stories that make the characters and books feel more approachable. I'm really intrigued by Colt and his backstory and am excited for his book next! CW: Alzheimer’s and death of a parent *I voluntarily read an advance review copy of this book*
